Nothing more to say than a grudging admiration for BB. Am curious to see how arguably a top 5 D in AZ flusters Garoppolo.

Patriots are absolutely tearing up the Cards vaunted secondary.

I think it's safe to say that Brady has made Karma his you know what.

He was a second round pick, that arguably could have sneaked into the first, three years ago. Playing competent football should be expected.

He came back to reality in the 2nd quarter. It's a 10-7 defensive game at this point.

I'm so jealous of the Patriots. They have a coaching staff that just knows how to win. They have amazing depth. It doesn't matter who doesn't play, their replacements can play well enough to not be a liability.

Yet I hear people around here toot how draft position is meaningless/doesn't matter?

So why should that second round status mean anything, then?

Payton is not a defensive coach

A higher round selection is typically more talented and possess a higher skill level coming into the league than a lower round pick. They are expected to be the better player more often than not, and will get more opportunities than a lower pedigreed player.

By year three or four, you have a reasonable idea as to how well their game has translated to the league. Sometimes you get a late bloomer (Justin Forsett) or a better fit (John Abraham), but more often than not you know before year five what you have in a player.

I'm not sure what the question was I guess.
